Easy DIY Scrabble Drink Coasters

After making all the Scrabble ornaments I made for
Christmas this year I had a lot of tiles left over. 

Easy DIY Scrabble Drink Coasters

This project was totally inspired by the many tiles I had left.

Some tiles are vintage and some are new but they all look great on a coaster.

I purchased a large piece of thin cork. If I were to do this project again I might get thicker cork because as much as this cork was easy to cut, it was fragile. Here is a link to coaster cork made especially for coasters 

I began by searching through the pile for garden words.
I glued them onto the cork using wood glue then randomly added letters between the words. When I had finished a set of 4 I did the same with beach words.

The fun part of these coasters is finding words that weren't even meant to be there!

When all the coasters were finished I laid them out on a sheet of parchment paper and sprayed them with a couple of coats of Triple Thick Clear Glaze to protect the tiles from stains.

The sealer changed the color of the tiles which made them even nicer looking!

I tied them together in stacks of 4 coasters, one beach themed and one garden themed.

They make a great gift and I'm adding them to the Homeroad Etsy Shop!
